Chris Tomlin – God Of This City lyrics

You're the God of this city
You're the King of these people
You're the Lord of these nation
You are

You're the light in this darkness
You're the hope to the hopeless
You're the peace to the restless
You are

There is no one like our God
There is no one like our God greater things
Have yet to come
And greater things
Are still to be done in this city greater things
Have yet to come
And greater things
Are still to be done here

    Acts 17: 26-29, "26 and he has made from one blood[c] every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the lord, in the hope that they might grope for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us; 28 for in him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘ for we are also his offspring. ’.
    The song confirms the truth of the word of god. Since he has made all the peoples, and scattered them in all the nations, for his purposes; he is the god of all the peoples and all the cities and all the nations. Amen!

    Greater things are yet to come. Speaking of cities, there will one day be a heavenly city, Jerusalem. Salem means peace and no one will be restless there. Doesn't that sound peaceful? But also exciting because greater things will happen there. Even now God is doing very great things by his Holy Spirit in us.
